    "What I was alluding to were previous assertions that so-called mainstream fiction is mostly derivative, plot-less and narcissistic (or something along those lines)."


    Are we meant to conclude from this statement that you see a link between so-called 'mainstream'/'literary' fiction and academia?

    And how circular has this greater discussion become, coming back to the academy, and what they do and don't teach?
